From the matrix, we can write V=B+Z.
Given V-B =2. From this Z=2
Also W=C+Z and X+C=4
If we know the value of W, we can find the value of X.

From the table,
x+a=m -----------(1)
x+c=p ------------(2)
z+b=v------------ (3)

Given, x+c=4---(4)
From (1) & (4), p=4.
Given, v-b=2
or, z+b-b=2 (from (3), v=z+b)
or, z=2
Given, a+z=1, so, a=1-2=-1
Now we know the value of a,z, and p.

From the table, we have z+c=w
or, 2+(4-x)=w (from (4), c=4-x)
or, x=6-w.

Therefore, the value of 'w' would be sufficient to find the value of 'x'.

TIP:

These kind of questions fall into the category " BRAINERS" .
And it would be wise to say that if you see such problems in your exam it is better to drop it within 30seconds as these problems are easy but are especially asked to waste our time. So I would suggest drop such problem within 30sec in your GMAT exam.
